Celebrity Nail Designs For Under $10

Pimped out nails are in

Pimped out cars are out. But pimped out nail designs are everywhere. Accent nails, neon, glittered, patterned and blinged out – an ordinary polish job just doesn’t cut it anymore. But the cost for a jazzed up manicure at your favorite salon can be expensive. With a manicure ranging from $35 to $60 it can really add up and fast.

Get creative

Celebrities have a team of people to keep them looking gorgeous. Us, on the other hand, have to be creative and frugal. However, with a little creativity you can achieve these fabulous manicures at home for under $10. The solution – nail stickers (or polish strips).

No steady hand required

Nail artists are skilled at designing amazing nail art designs with a brush, polish and a steady hand. Nail stickers take all the know-how out of creating intricate designs. They are easy to apply, lasts for days and come in dozens (and I mean dozens) of designs.

All about accents

Use your favorite nail polish and find a coordinated set of nail stickers. You can use the nail strips for accent nails – usually the ring and thumb nails. You can also use more than one design. The combinations and possibilities are plentiful. You can get very creative by mixing colors, prints, finishes and even textures.

Above all, it’s fun

Doing these types of manicures at home are easy and fun. They also save you a ton of money. A set of nail stickers (or polish strips) retail for about $6 and can be used for multiple manicures.

Give one of these funky manicure looks a try. You’ll be amazed at how much fun you’ll have doing them and how great they look. Give your manicure a bit of celebrity treatment.

  1. I’ve seen a lot of those trends going on lately. The most surprising one is the “no steady hand required” … there was a tie-dye looking design I saw where you can mix a few colors together to make a swirl. Very creative! Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi WHM! Yeah these manis have been trending for some time now and won’t be going away soon. Good thing is you can do them at home without wasting time and money. Thanks for commenting,

    I have never actually had a manicure like that but I think pimped out nails are very nice. You can get really creative for a weekend out on the town and then do something nice but a bit toned down for the office. Definitely something fun to play with.

    • Hi Sicorra! Your right. You can easily turn it up or down with the nail stickers. They are great for special occasions or when you want to take it up a notch for weddings and what not. I love the ability to save the extra cash on mani for my other bad habits — new makeup and shoes! Thanks for commenting,

    I used to do the “nail” thing but being active with my dog, working at the shelter, and typing for a living, they just get in the way. I opted for the easy way and go au naturale :)

    • Hi Bren,

      I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to cut my nails for the keyboard. As bloggers, we are at the mercy of the keyboard. I’ve chipped many of nails on this bad boy! Thanks for commenting,


  4. I’m lovin’ the pimped out look but I always to back to the white tips and pink powder.

    I don’t have a steady hand to do it myself so I save to have them done at a salon. My daughter is another story…she’s always doing some creative art with her nails.

    Great post Nicole!

    • Corina, I’m torn when it comes to nails. I love the sophistication of a traditional, classy french manicure. But I also love the edginess and boldness of a celeb-style mani. I guess it all depends on my mood that week or how I want to approach the week ahead. I don’t have a steady hand either so I love the nail stickers and stampers — they are my friends.
      Thanks for commenting,

    Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m so not a girly girl. I’ve never had a mani and I don’t even paint my finger nails. BUT! I do paint my toe nails. It’s a must for me. A solid color is fine, it just needs to be painted. I remember painting my own nails when I was 9 months pregnant. Foots stuck out to the side, trying to reach my toes. It wasn’t a pretty sight but I did it
